Having fun helping at a triathlon

Have you ever helped anyone with a race? If you haven't, you should. It's a lot of fun.

When my mom asked if I wanted to help her with a friend's triathlon, I said, "OK."

A few weeks later we were up at 6 a.m. waiting for breakfast. We went down to a beach and got out of the car, then went to the sign-up desk.

We helped at the sign-up desk first, then we helped when the people were getting into the water. I helped give out shirts at the sign-up desk, and at the water I helped videotape the athletes.

They were all really fast. There were doughnuts, apples, bananas and other foods.
